* Review Dr. Ting's 717+ Q&A on RealSelf

Dr. William Ting has the expertise and particular interest in treating disorder of pigmentation such as melasma and post-inflammatory pigmentation. Strict daily sun protection using SPF 45 and above sunscreen, reapplication of sunscreen between 10am and 4pm when outdoors, wearing hat and sunglasses and gentle cleansing must be part of a comprehensive therapy. Individual consultation with Dr. Ting is required where he may recommend a combination of antioxidant cleanser and/or vitamin C skin care products in the morning followed by sunscreen application; and in the evening, alternating bleaching cream and/or prescription-strength topical retinoid. Discontinuation of birth control pill and estrogen replacement is strongly recommended as any introduction of exogenous estrogen will make pigmentation worse. A combination of Spectra Laser and/or microdermabrasion should be considered to speed up the process of evening out skin tone. Dr. Ting no longer advises use of IPL for treatment of melasma, particularly for ethnic skin as the risk of worsening pigmentation is nontrivial. The most appropriate lasers for melasma, post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation are based on Nd:Yag laser technology. We recommend Spectra Laser Peel (Q-switched Nd:Yag laser) and Cutera GenesisPlus (mid-range Nd:Yag laser) to achieve effective and safe reduction of pigmentation, without any downtime and appropriate for ALL skin types.

SPECTRA LASER by Lutronic for Melasma, Pigment

Introducing the Spectra Q-switched Nd:Yag Laser, known for its versatility, reliability, and safety in treating melasma and post-inflammatory pigmentation. We are proud to be the first medical clinic in Northern California to introduce Spectra laser, which arguably is the most effective laser for melasma and post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation. The pigmentation treatment protocol involves 10 weekly treatments of Soft Peel using Spectra carbon lotion where 20-70 microns of epidermis gets ablated gently alternating with Laser Toning upon subsequent weekly sessions.
